A sheer, romantic, long-sleeved dress, such as this abstract floral piece by Comrags, is friendly for all seasons. Opaque tights, a ubiquitous trend this season, will lend quirk and coverage come winter.
With its graphic silhouette, medium weight fabric and monochromatic scheme, a Sportmax dress is the epitome of all-weather wearable.
Sportmax dress, $1,850 at Max Mara. Earring, $195 through patriciawong.ca. Uribe cuff, $380 (U.S.) through net-a-porter.com. Ring (bottom), £125 through studiouribe.co.uk. Ring (top), £275 through allisonbryan.co.uk.
Karen Walker's intricate lace blouse pairs perfectly with a tan leather wrap-style skirt. For the final days of summer, wear the top with floaty linen trousers, and the skirt with a T-shirt and denim jacket.
The juicy hue of Boss's architectural dress is an eye-catching option for a late-season wedding, but will look just as chic when worn into autumn with patent boots.
The bold, perennially pretty floral pattern of Jennifer Torosian's elegant wide-leg pants is tempered by an oversized wool-panelled tunic in chic black; the top's mix of textiles will be a minimalist hit come spring when combined with a flowing silk skirt.
A simple silhouette and artful print make Ace & Jig's jumpsuit a hit for warmer weather; wearing it layered over a collared blouse will keep you covered the rest of the year.
An off-the-shoulder blouse and cropped denim, two of summer's It-pieces, remain wardrobe must-haves this season. For fall, wear the jeans with a turtleneck and high boots.
